Benefits Of PEMF
The sizable body of research and clinical results on Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy, provide an increasing number of evidences that PEMF has beneficial bioeffects. Although the results are argued as based on empirical approaches, PEMF, undeniably offer an alternative as non-invasive therapies even for medical problems that at times are considered recalcitrant to conventional treatments.
The following are some of the benefits of PEMF found in the researches and clinical results;
Enhance health and wellness by increasing blood flow, oxygenation of tissues and removal of toxins from the cells
PEMF treatment has been shown to enhance health and wellness by increasing blood flow and aiding the efficiency of cellular repair. This is accomplished by promoting bioelectricity in the body through the minerals in the blood. The human blood is 90% water and is filled with electro-conductive minerals, ie electrolytes. The minerals act as conductor when magnetic field is pulsed to the body thus allowing the ions of the minerals to flow throughout the energy pathways of the entire body. This cause the blood circulation in the vessels and capillaries, which facilitate the pressure of oxygen in the tissue and the transportation of metabolic waste products.
Complements the management of inflammation especially in post-operative recovery
As an important role in the immune system, magnetic fields increase the rate of oxygenation of white corpuscles. Also, magnetic fields naturally lower acidity in the body, making it more difficult for microorganisms to survive. As a result of such effects, researches show that PEMF prohibits bacterial growth and improve immune response against bacterial infection. Considering the significant lag time between the administration of antibiotics and its absorption at the site of injury, bacteria can potentially multiply. Pending the delivery of the antibiotic, therefore, PEMF treatment can be applied exigently. Since PEMF can penetrate even poorly vascularized tissue, septic shock can be prevented while waiting for the antibiotics to take effect.
Increase healing rates of traumatized tissues
Since PEMF can permeate through tissues, studies show that the electrical potentials around the traumatized tissues are stimulated by the magnetic field. The stimulation accelerates the proliferation of cells through cell dedifferentiation which then facilitates the healing process. Furthermore, its been found in research that the pulsed magnetic field restores the equilibrium between free radicals and antioxidants as they work to stop the cascade of inflammatory progression and biochemical degradation in the traumatized tissue.
It has been recognized that biomagnetic field is the electric activity of the biological tissues. Magnetic stimulation is a method for stimulating the muscle tissues or the nervous system through an induced electric current. As a modality for magnetic stimulation, it has been shown that PEMF generates lower electric fields at the surface of the body, resulting in greater penetration and the ability to stimulate deep nerves without pain. This is possible since electromagnetic fields can penetrate, unattenuated, through muscle tissues, bones and such regions as the electrically insulating skull. Hence, stimulation of the central nervous system is achieved without utilizing a high current thereby treatment is accomplished without discomfort. Also, no physical contact of the electromagnetic field source and the target tissue is required.
Modulate traumatic brain injury
Because Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) can reduce inflammation after soft tissue injuries, studies have shown that exposure to PEMF can accelerate the recovery of the blood-brain barrier after brain injury. Thus, the window of opportunity for brain protection is significantly prolonged after traumatic brain injury. The same study revealed that the intensity of neuroprotection is likewise enhanced.
A number of other benefits of PEMF therapy have been manifested through more than 2,000 double blind, university level medical studies. Even pubmed.com, which is run by the U.S. Government (National Institutes of Health) has numerous clinical studies associated with PEMF. These studies all meet the so-called "gold standard", ie. double-blind and placebo-controlled. Hence, many medical practitioners use pubmed.com to keep up-to-date on the latest research on a variety of medical topics. Click the links for a examples of a few pubmed publications;
